Bank Holiday EASTER Fayre

A huge thank you to everyone who came to our Easter Fayre. The weather wasn’t very kind to us but Hunsbury Bear and Easter Bunny kept everyone amused with fun on the train and around the site.

Well done to our raffle winners and Easter Egg Hunt Competition Winners. Time after time we have returning visitors and we look forward to seeing you all again at our next event. Many thanks to all our sponsors and helpers on the day.
